Yes sir DP,I am in full agreement that 10/21 was an important show.That Dark Star seemed to be a jumping off point for a new and exciting version of the band,with a wide array of possibilities due to the skills of their new member.The previous performances of Dark Star and the Other One in 71' felt tired and dull,but in that 17 show run between OCT-DEC they delivered another great Dark Star on 12/5 and 3 excellent Other One's on 11/12,12/4 and 12/6.
As for the JGB with Nicky or Keith,I will have to admit I don't care for version with Nicky,but I did enjoy the 5 shows I saw with Keith.
